Local Sports

BALTIMORE, MD (KTSM) – Former New Mexico State standout Jaleel Scott continues to turn heads in Baltimore at Ravens training camp. Scott missed all of last season, his rookie year, with a hamstring injury. The 6’5, 220 lbs. wide receiver is back and ready to go in 2019.

“It was a humbling experience,” said Scott. “Having football taken away from me and being on IR, I couldn’t be out here on the practice field. I did get to stay in the meetings, watch a lot of film and study. It hurt, but look where I’m at now. I’m trying to make the 53.”

Scott hauled in one reception for 25 yards in the Ravens’ first preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has the opportunity to be one of Lamar Jackson’s favorite targets in the offense.

“Everything you do you have to have confidence and you have to know that you can get the job done,” said Scott. “I feel like my confidence went up as well as my preparation during the offseason. My training, the things I knew I had to work on, I attacked them this offseason.”

Scott and the Ravens will be back on the field Thursday night in a preseason matchup against the Green Bay Packers.
